Police crack down on litterbugs and hoons between Redhead and Belmont beaches

LAKE Macquarie acting inspector Dan Sykes has warned police will crack down on reckless behaviour on the beach between Redhead and Belmont.

The area has become a rubbish dumping and a race track for four-wheel-drivers and quad-bike riders.

Inspector Sykes said people were "hooning around" the dunes at a high speed - some in unregistered vehicles.
